Hi, While preparing and update of the Debian package of DBD-mysql, I noticed that the README.pod file misses a proper NAME heading. Each manual page should start with a "NAME" section, which lists the name and a brief description of the page separated by "-". The "NAME" section is parsed by lexgrog and used to generate a database that's queried by commands like apropos and whatis. The attached patch modifies the first heading to match this requirement. Thanks for considering, Damyan Ivanov, Debian Perl Group

Your patch caused issues with displaying the documentation on and -- see Unfortunately I had to revert the patch; so the next version of DBD::mysql will no longer have it. Of course if the Debian team needs it to match with your guidelines, you might decide to carry it downstream. -- Mike.
